Let's fix politics! (the unpopular thread)

Postby GoR64 » Sun Sep 09, 2018 5:49 pm

I've been too busy to post much on here lately, or even skate tbh (more gym stuff and riding a lot since you asked) but I occasionally pop on, just to see who's about and what's occurring.

In the interest of alleviating my current boredom, I thought I'd start a political thread! Just to throw some wasps into the tin of worms on the bonfire, so to speak.

My proposition is that we should start a political party, and the first step in doing so would be to decide on policies; I don't mean of the "ban scooters from bowls" variety, I mean actual current issues that we can fix using our intelligence, experience and ideologies. Since we're all on the same side, this should be easy, right?

Your proposals will be put into action with immediate effect, so please bear in mind that everything you say here has very real consequences.

Hell yeah lets do this!
We can be the renegade party. Winner takes all, whoever wins gets to decide all political enactments until the next election.
Rules to vote: renegade a beer do a kickflip(stationary or moving your call). Rebuttable is the same, repeat until there is only one standing and landing. I'll even offer one more option. For those who dont drink, you can take a bong rip, from a bong no less than 24" tall with a 2" opening, and do heelflips, Last standing and landing rule applies.
Dont drink? Dont Smoke? Cant Kickflip? Cant Heelflip? Learn them or your voice will not matter! Dont vote your voice isnt heard.

Oh and whoever looses, No bitching if the politics enacted by the winner are against your beliefs!
Politics are simple!

So, it seems our first 'member' has immediately imposed rules for voting! Of course this legislation can be overturned just as easily as it was appointed, in the meantime, it seems every citizen must learn to skate, kick/heelflip and chug a beer/rip a bong.

For this rule to be changed, as the law governs in our sceptered isle, one must first meet the stated requirements. As and when this happens, I'm sure we'll move into the similarly pressing issues of economy, immigration and welfare.

I oppose this. I demand that all citizens rip beers and chug bongwater instead.

... .


We are all here on this forum so on the same side, but I think we will need factions.

We need a left faction (sustainable deck manufacturing etc), a right faction (to impose discriminatory laws such as those humans owning a dog, must either have a dog that tolerates skateboards or have it on a leash - I am personally not amused by dogs that go nuts at the sound/sight of me rolling along footpaths, it breaks my concentration on the very serious and dangerous activity of skateboarding).

Instead of a centre faction a silly faction seems to be needed - to accomodate those who request compulsory kick flipping and bong water chugging.

I do core strength exercise with one of those big inflatable balls - helps popping to the feet surfing and protects the back - short board surfing in middle age can be a back wrecker unless the core is solid. I'm skating 2-3 times a week. Skated twice today. I do plan to get some footage of myself trying to ollie for your expert analysis. Almost got to the skatepark this morning - skated to the tram stop - a challenging skate for me with a really really low curb to negotiate, divots in the pavement and uneven paving slabs, then found I had misplaced my public transport card. So I skated back to the public (not skate) park opposite where I live and satiated my desire to skate there. Daylight is starting earlier now, so should be able to film some footage shortly.

BTW Fuck skateparks. Make your own. Dont rely on handouts from others to skate!
Oh. Just a heads up @ Scissorhands, you need to do a kick flip to have a say in the politics in this thread. Its Actricle 1 subsection 2.
So.....Do A Kickflip! b~
